Hilde De Windt, Video Journalist at VRT, takes on the task to coordinate the TV Current Affairs Jury Group
‘'To measure is to know.' This is a sort of new proverb in Dutch, a credo for facts and figures. Rightly so of course, but as an investigative current affairs journalist, one should use one’s intuition as much. Feeling the heartbeat of people and reading the sign of the times often leak to untold storie. Once you dig deeper in it, the evidence becomes apparent.’
Hilde De Windt has been a storyteller since she was a youngster. She played theatre, took Scandinavian literature & studies, made a career as a radio presenter and reporter. After 16 years of creating wonderful worlds with sound only, the photographer’s microbe won and she turned to the visual. She became a TV maker: writing and producing programme formats, making reportages. In the investigative field she worked on themes as migration, identity and health.
